TWO WELSH LOVERS
What though my husbands forehead ake,
I weigh it not a pin: Yet if by chance he should vs take,
we both must cry Due gwin.
15 Thus were the louers perfect friends,
the Nymph, as best became her, Did make her shepheard such amend,1
he knew not how to blame her. Yet let all young men keepe [at home]
if they their loues w[ould win,] If they be lost while [they are gone,]
then they may cry [Due gwin.']
By Martin [Parker].
London Printed for Ioh\n Wright and are]
to be sold at his shop [near the Hospi]tall
gate in S[mithfield.]
